Bill’s family immigrated to Canada in 1930, settling near Niverville, Man. Here Bill farmed with his brother Frank for 44 years. When Frank married, Bill and his mother moved to town. He cared for her until she moved to Donwood Personal Care Home, Winnipeg. Bill continued farming, his enjoyment in life, until retirement. Bill accepted Jesus as Saviour at 15. At the MB church in Niverville, he sang in the choir, served as usher and helped build the church. Bill surrounded his home with flowers. He made tasty fish fries to share with his brother Dave, and enjoyed many coffees at Chicken Chef with his friends. Beginning in 2006, Bill received care at Menno Home, Grunthal, Man., in 2006.
